    Enormous CTRs! Just, Why?

    Hey, I live in Mallorca, Spain. There are a couple of small airports that don't have unregulated airspace, and there is one big airport in Palma de Mallorca, the capital of Mallorca, but the Controlled Airspace of that airport is just huge, even larger than Miami airport's controlled airspace...

    Air 2s Public Airport near my home. G4 airspace No LAANC required. Added Night Shot

But it definitely keeps me vigilant when flying near my house. Sometimes when they take off, instead of flying out through their...

    A new look at the Gatwick Airport U.K. Drone Debacle; What they should have done.

    I'll get straight to my point. THEY SPENT 800,000 POUNDS !! Just to investigate drone sightings that were unverified. It's the 800,000 pounds that perplexes me. Instead of running around spending money on an investigation, THEY COULD HAVE BOUGHT AND INSTALLED A HIGH END DRONE DETECTION SYSTEM...

    Not always the drone operators who are wrong

    I try and fly by the rules and do the correct thing. In Switzerland I wanted to fly my drone about 4km from a heliport (Interlaken) so technically within the 5km zone. After telephoning the airport I was sent by email a form to complete. For some reason, the heliport wanted 24 hours notice...

    Apple's Drone images

    I'm interested in where this image might be from I'm also interested in how Apple is able to do this drone footage of an airport with all the NFZ spaces. This is on their 4k Apple TV. The planes are all moving so this is not a static satellite image.

I genuinely did not see any signs to declare a Drone upon arriving and because...

    Flying in big cities (heliports galore)

    Hey all, Just got a spark yesterday and registered with the FAA. I'm in Philly and airmap shows I'm in the 5mi radius of an airport and 26 heliports. Calling all of them for a 15 minute flight is just not worth the hassle. B4UFLY also tells me I'm within a 5mi radius bit won't show me which...
